MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — About three hundred people shuffled through The Dominion Post’s Family Fall Fest visiting booths, eating funnel cakes and decorating pumpkins on Oct. 23.

With this being the first year the newspaper has done a fall festival, Multimedia Coordinator Amanda DeProspero wanted to bring a lot of vendors and activities to draw a big crowd.

“This year, we really tried to make it our mission to do more community involved things,” DeProspero said. “We had a Pokémon event earlier in the summer and a football kickoff party at the beginning of the season that were both successful, so we decided to do something like a fall festival.”

DeProspero, along with other volunteers, started planning the festival in September beginning with calling agencies, restaurants and nonprofits to see who would want to be involved.

“This will kind of be the last hurrah of the season, but we plan on doing more of these things in the future,” DeProspero said.
